    This week Bill Plaschke wrote about Tiger woods return to golf in The Masters tournament April 8. He says that this return to the biggest sporting event for golf is good for Tiger but bad for golf. He says this because the security for this event is tight and Tiger will be able to limit his exposure and communications with the press. However, for the Masters itself this is bad because the sex scandal will completley eclipse anything golf related that happens during the tournament.
    As for Plaschkes writting I did notice that he was using longer paragraphs than in previous article. Usually his paragraph lengths are 1 to 2 sentences with limited number 3 and above. This time most were 3 sentences and sometimes more. However, this length did not take away from his points. In fact, this was one of the best articles from him that I have read.

    This week, Dan steinberg discusses the ongoing controversy on Tony Kornheiser’s comments on Cyclists sharing D.C are streets.

    Kornheiser said that cyclists on the road should be run to the ground, and drivers should just tapped the cyclist. These comments created a stir of controversy on blogs and twitter.

    Lance Armstrong stated on his twitter pages that Kornheiser is “disgusting, ignorant, and foolish.” Steinberg also added that millions of cycling fans were angry over his comments and stated that the joke itself was not funny.

    Kornheiser finally apologizes for his comments after his telephone call with Armstrong. Armstrong will also appear on “The Tony Kornheiser Show” on Friday.

    This week Tim Graham wrote most of his posts on how the AFC East teams are fairing in the off season and where they stand in the upcoming draft. In this past week, the Jets signed running back LaDainian Tomlinson and dropped their RB, Thomas Jones. Graham wrote a few posts discussing the pros and cons of aging RBs and if this was a good deal. He also wrote about how Tim Tebow would fit with the Patriots. As for the Bills, Graham wrote about how their defense is coming together but their offensive line is still in dire need of some talent. He also provided some video, one with Tebow and an analysis by Tedy Bruschi.

    http://goal.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/03/20/m-l-s-and-players-near-a-new-deal/

    This week Jack Bell wrote about a new deal made between the M.L.S. and its players. The union that represents the players announced a five-year agreement. Had an agreement not been reached, the union was expected to strike within the next week.

    The present contract allows for the M.L.S. to retain the rights to players even after their contracts are over. This is one of the main decisions the union wanted to improve.

    On a side note, the M.L.S. will add two additional teams named the Vancouver Whitecaps and the Portland Timbers, totaling to 18 teams.

    Bell’s writing was a little more wordy this week, maybe because there was so much news to give. The paragraphs were longer than usual. He does do a good job of altering the lengths of the paragraphs though. For instance, if there is a long paragraph then he makes sure that the next one is a sentence or two in order to keep the audiences attention.

    This week Grant Wahl answers e-mails from readers on issues ranging from great goals scored by Americans in European club soccer to ESPN’s World Cup coverage.

    Clint Dempsey an incredible chip from outside the box to clinch Fulham’s victory against Juventus in the Europa League. I agree with Wahl’s point it is the greatest goal ever scored by an American in a big European game.

    ESPN will use four British broadcasters, including the legendary Martin Tyler as lead, as television play-by-play announcers for the World Cup. Wahl is concerned about not having an American announcer. Normally I would agree, but it is hard to disagree with hiring Martin Tyler.

    Wahl also answered questions about bad haircuts of U.S. national team players and Landon Donovan’s stint at Everton.

    This week, Bill Simmons did a running commentary of the NCAA Basketball tournament with his buddies from his man-cave. He basically tweeted his thoughts and conversations with his friends as they happened, while watching the games. Readers were able to interact and submit questions, vote on polls, and read along with the conversation.

    On Saturday, columnist Bob Ryan had a few words to say about Ohio’s win over Georgetown last Thursday.

    He had one question, “How did these guys go 7-9 in their Conference?”

    The answer, no one knows. Ohio, No. 14 shot unbelievable shots against the No.3 Hoyas who looked “confused and outclassed.”

    Ryan focuses on Ohio’s guard Armon Basset who scored 32 points in the game.

    Ryan wonders if this game can be repeated Saturday afternoon against Tennesse to put them in the Sweet 16. The answer is simply no.

    This week LaVar Arrington discussed several different topics. The most in depth was the work ethic of Albert Haynesworth. He disagress about the option Haynesworth has taken to train on his own instead of with the team.

    He also commented about March Madness and the possibility of the tournament becoming a 96 team tournament in the upcoming years.

    http://www.thehockeynews.com/articles/32354-Campbells-Cuts-Rumors-of-relocation.html

    This weeks article by Ken Campbell deals with potential relocation of several NHL teams. The most surprising on his list of teams that may move was the Los Angles Kings.

    http://joeposnanski.com/JoeBlog/2010/03/22/tiger-beat/

    This week Joe Posnanski wrote about Tiger Woods. Like most of the stories about Tiger Woods today Joe’s piece was about his life outside of golf. Joe did not take a side on the matter he simply listed some of Tigers quotes from the whole ordeal. The quotes where in chronological order which allowed me to see how everything digressed so quickly.

    This was an interesting side of the Tiger Wood’s story that I have not seen before, simple because I was able to make up my own mind about what Tiger did, Instead of being told that what he did was wrong or right.

    This week Sam Borden and Chad Jennigs wrote about a few different things. First off, they covered the spring training game they played yesterday against the Phillies, which they lost 9-7. That was pretty upsetting to me. They wrote about the pitching staff and how they might place some on a waiver. Hopefully the Yanks win the next game!

  13.   Lijam M Says:

    In his most recent column Wilbon spoke about the NCAA tournament. He talked about how this years tournament is unlike another with the amount of early round upsets that have happened. He spoke about how 6 teams that should be in the sweet 16s as a lock did not make it and how it makes for an interesting unpredictable NCAA tournament

    http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/bruins/articles/2010/03/19/to_fans_job_not_getting_done/

    This week Dan Shaughnessy reported on how angry the Bruin’s fans were after their loss to the Penguins. The fans were so angry about the loss that some vowed never to come back to the Garden.

    In this article he makes a lot of Red Sox metaphors comparing the players. This really helped me to understand how devastating this loss truly was to the Bruin’s fans.

    Shaungnessy continued to discuss the “devastating” Bruin’s season and predicted that they will not be playing long into the spring much to the fan’s chagrin

    This week, Gene Wojciechowski wrote about the unexpected events that have occured thus far in the 2010 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

    Wojciechowski’s sense of humor was evident early in his story, as he wrote: My NCAA bracket looks like I passed out on the X key of my laptop. It’s a bracket in need of a tourniquet.

    His focus throughout the story revolves around the possibilities of several remaining “underdogs” (Cornell, Saint Mary’s and Northern Iowa) going deep into this weekend’s set of games and possibly advancing to the Final Four.

    It will be interesting to see what teams prevail this weekend and advance to the Final Four in Indianapolis; the tournament is as wide open as it has ever been.

    This week Martin Tyler answers questions about how certain events can effect the points standings.

    His main focus is on how goals in the last 10 minutes have taken points away from teams. It showed that while Sunderland haven’t conceded the most of them, they have lost the most points in the standings because of them.

    Tyler also gives stats on the most goals by a player since 05/06 season, who is the best disciplined team, and whats the biggest points lead Manchester United have ever had over Liverpool.

    http://jay-mariotti.fanhouse.com/2010/03/22/mauer-staying-home-is-landmark-baseball-tale/

    Jay’s column this time around talks about the signing of Joe Mauer by the Minnesota Twins to keep him in Minnesota for the next 8 years. He brought up the organization’s failure to resign other high tier free agents like Tori Hunter and Johan Santana, but also about how the team, with a brand new stadium in Target Field opening this spring, has opened up enough money that it doesn’t hamstring the Twins as much as it did with Hunter and Santana.

    He also says that this means more because Mauer is a homegrown product, has been a prominent athlete in the state his whole life and much like Cal Ripken did for the Orioles in Maryland, Mauer means a lot to his home town and the state’s team.

    http://www.buffalonews.com/2010/03/17/990960/these-places-put-western-new-york.html

    This week, my columnist wrote about Western New Yorks apperance in March Madness.

    He also went to a series of names of people and places that they were from in Buffalo. These people not clear at the beginning, were people of importance to the Buffalo area.

    The were hoops stars from all around the place. Because in the beginning of the article DiCesare, discuss that Buffalo was not ever really a basketball town.
